Full Circle Lab Philippines

Initially scheduled for April and postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the expanded edition of Full Circle Lab Philippines will take place in September, from September 15 to 30 through an online platform. The international film development program is a collaboration between FDCP and Tatino Films. 

This will be Full Circle Lab’s second edition following a successful first-run in the Philippines last year. Full Circle Lab Philippines will continue as scheduled with a more-expansive program consisting of four film labs (Fiction, Series, Animation, and First Cut) supporting projects from the Philippines and across the rest of Southeast Asia.

In total, Full Circle Lab Philippines will support 20 projects across four different film labs. Under the Fiction lab, eight projects under the fiction category and in the development stage will receive mentorship from Full Circle Lab mentors. Meanwhile, there will be four projects each under the series and animation category for projects in development. Full Circle Lab Philippines will also include the ‘First Cut’ editing lab, for feature-length films in the editing stage. ‘First Cut’ will be supporting four films. The labs will be led by various international film industry experts led by Matthieu Daras and Izabela Igel as the head mentors.
